Daisies and Bruises

Patient Leader

Daisies and Bruises is about both sides of life, the pleasure and the pain. It's the product of a 29-year-old named Erin finding her way after she lost most of her youth to severe depression. She decided that since death was no longer an option, she had to find a way to live. Writing and art are her outlets and have become the reason for her existence. She hopes to share, educate, and motivate all people struggling with mental illness personally or supporting someone who does. Erin loves all her readers, her Boston/pug mix Digby, and writing!
